At times, some of our favorite trends are anything but- they are the classics, the tried and true- and that is how we feel about today’s fatality: red nails. This classic polish color may fall in and out of fashion favor throughout the decades but the fact remains red nails make a statement, a bold, flashy, unapologetic statement, at that. Past femme fatales such as Isabella Rossellini, Monica Bellucci, and Dita Von Teese have all rocked the rouge nail to accompany their signature style. You too, can make red nails your own by answering the following questions:
- What shade of red suits you best? Similar to red lips, not all red lacquers are created equal… So choose your red wisely, and we promise you- you will fall in love!
- What shape nail do you prefer? From the classic, short, square to the fierce, pointy nail- red looks good in any shape. It is up to you decide which shape you are feeling at the moment.
-Patterned, Solid, or Matte? Trick question- the answer is all of the above! Red knows no bounds when it comes to such details. Whether you choose the matte/shiny mani in a deep, ruby red or a half moon nail- dedicated to The Great Gatsby fever sweeping the scene- red is the color to use.
Summer is heating up, femme fatales, maybe it is time your nails do too! Embrace the fatality!
